Scores according to KAYAK customer reviews
Cons: "The website could work for starters"
Pros: "The entire flight was excellent, on time, great friendly crew, edible food, movies and options were great, perfect in every way. It was a little chaotic at flight loading on extra security, but I assume it could have something to do with it being on 9/11 and it was ultimately bound for NYC."
Cons: "I honestly cannot think of anything."
Pros: "Prompt boarding and departure."
Cons: "Refreshments and up to date airplane. Plane seem outdated and very loud. Flight attendants could use a friendlier demeanor"
Cons: "Being on time."
Cons: "Crew unfriendly."
Pros: "They were great & super friendly!!"
Pros: "Crew was great. Planes with built in TV was even better."
Cons: "One really obnoxious kid kept screaming the entire time. Instead of charging for earbuds maybe give them out for those of us that don’t have any."
Pros: "The crew was professional and courteous, one of the best crews we had experienced onboard Delta."
Cons: "Cleaner bathroom"
Cons: "The WiFi"
Pros: "Fine, courteous"
Cons: "Everything. Flight got delayed, luggage was sent before i boarded the plane. Terrible service of Delta. Never again using Delta or going to Atlanta. Wasted two days already from my vacation..."
Cons: "The comfort of the seat, the food"
Cons: "Everything else"
Pros: "Nice ride, entertainment available and arriving a little early was a plus."

Pros: "No entertainment and no food other than snacks."
Pros: "Crew was friendly enough, but not overly."

Pros: "Flight crew was excellent"
Cons: "Didn't serve snacks with peanuts because someone one board had a peanut allergy"
Pros: "Easy boarding, helpful crew, on time, informative pilot"
Cons: "Fewer and fewer choices for beverage and snack"
Pros: "The service and snack selection is better than the other large US carriers. Delta studio is a decent replacement for the lack of PTVs on these planes."
Cons: "Delta offers a decent product on most of their fleet but the 717 or MD-88/90 can be extremely loud at the back of the plane. You better bring ear plugs or noise cancelling headphones and learn to read the flight attendants lips."
Pros: "Although the flight was delayed, when it was time to board and take off, this was extremely efficient."
Cons: "Delayed flight. However, I know this sometimes out ot the airlines control."
Pros: "I told the crew I had a short connection time at a far terminal and I was worried because my seat was in the rear of the aircraft and they were able to move me up closer to the front to ensure I got off the aircraft quickly to make my next flight. That was amazing."

Cons: "I have nothing to complain about"
Cons: "The person sitting next to me what is not able to fit in their seat, therefore, he filled his seat and half of my seat. I don't think it's fair that I paid for a full seat and only was able to use half of my seat. I was incredibly uncomfortable the entire flight. I was pressed up against the window and against the stranger passenger that I did not know. By the end of the flight, my shirt and my pants are soaked with sweat, it was not my sweat."

I was given no instructions on how to do this finally after speaking to a travel agent I got a phone numbers I could call. Called and was told what web sight to go to. Filled in still waiting for a reply a day later. Not happy. I dout that this write up will get any response. The"
Pros: "Stewardess was great"

Pros: "Flight cancelled after multiple delays. Huge line with single agent to rebook everyone"
Pros: "Friendly attentive crew"

Pros: "Legroom, interactive lcd screens on seat headrests. Would fly again, affordable as well."
Pros: "Decent boarding group, same snacks, same flight attendants (who were very nice)"
Cons: "My only gripe is that paying for an assigned seat is only allowed 48 hours before takeoff and costs at least $30, twice what Spirit charges to allow you to select a seat during booking, so it is worse. No one watched us to ensure that we didn’t use the overhead bins (a stipulation of the fare) but we did comply anyway. We chose to take our chances and were assigned seats at the gate 16 rows apart and both in the middle seat."
Pros: "FUE OPERADO POR AMERICAN AIRLINES Y EL VUELO DESDE TAMPA DESPEGO TARDE Y PERDIMOS LA CONEXION A JAPON TODO EL DIA EN EL AEROPUERTO SOLO HASTA EL DIA 21 VAMOS A SALIR DE LOS ANGELES A TOKIO SI TENEMOS ALGO DE SUERTE MUY MALO EN VERDAD NOS ENTIMOS ENGAÑADOS"
Pros: "Quiet clean bathroom good layover time"
Pros: "If you are not in first class, they treat you like dirt."
Cons: "I saw the whole plane packed in the back with 6 people in a row, when the middle of the plane has plenty of empty seats. It seems that American Airlines will pack people who don't pay for choice of seats in the back. Distasteful practice."

Pros: "Better than united. Customer service is awesome"
Cons: "Took off 30 mins late because of work form not being signed off???"
Pros: "Small seats, no consideration for disabled travelers. Pretzels suck. One 30 min tv show on 2.5 hour flight. No bathroom for handicap. Cheap airfare is the only reason I fly American. One attendant asked me, with attitude, if I was going to get off the plane...before realizing I can't physically walk. Her face turned white as a ghost when she realized what she had said and how she had said it."
Cons: "See above"
Pros: "I like the comfort and the cheap prices of the fear rates"
Pros: "Crew was nice. Entertainment on my second leg was good"
Cons: "My flight was delayed and I only made my connecting flight by sprinting (literally sprinting) to my gate. I think a more concerted effort could have been made by crew to identify those passengers with quick connections (because of the delay) to make sure we could depart first. The captain did make a plea for people to be considerate of those who might have close connections, but nobody paid any attention to that."
Cons: "Kept me waiting till 930PM and cancelled the 2nd flight as well. Ruined my entire trip as I was flying in from abroad to attend a wedding. No indication of refund. I had to rent a car and drive to Tulsa in the middle of the night to attend the functions. The on site staff could not provide any relevant information and kept telling us to go online or call 800 number. Very disappointing and loss of my had earned money. How can I get a refund?"
Pros: "Most attendants were excellent. Kind and polite. Flights on time and arrivals were early."
Cons: "Have not leave DFW plane was canceled and standing more than hour to get the next fight and have not get a seat yet"
Cons: "Very hot, uncomfortable cheap seats. No refreshment cart came by. And our flight was delayed a couple hours which didn't help either"
Pros: "For my flight out, it was on time. Efficient. Nice crew."
Cons: "This is a criticism of flights in general that are 'economy'... no blankets or pillows or even a pack of peanuts! Basically, a seat on a plane. If you want anything else, you pay..."
Pros: "Fare was affordable The flight was on time"
Cons: "Baggage charges cor carry on were unexpected. We expected charges for checked baggage but not carry on! It was our first time to travel with frontier and we were unprepared. There were six of us (family) and each with carry on baggage. We were shocked upon arriving at the counter that we will be paying extra. Anyway, charge to experience. Overall the flight was fine."
Cons: "I never took this flight. It was cancelled but u continued to keep sendimg me emails about check in .i never was chatged as far as i know . So very poor. My flight out of san antonio with frontier airlines was awful!!"
Pros: "Super uncomfortable seats"
Pros: "The ride home"
Cons: "The 4 hour delay that received once we arrived at 4:30 AM to catch our 6 o'clock flight home to find out it had been delayed until 9:28 AM. Once we were on the plane we were then told we would be delayed until 10 AM. Flying with two children was difficult for a four hour delay. However front tier did give us all $10 food vouchers and $50 vouchers each for our next flight. Once we landed in Houston we then sat on the tarmac for another hour waiting for the gate open. The plane did have mechanical issues which caused the delay but still the notice given was always last minute"
Pros: "On time. Priced low. Staff professional, friendly."
Pros: "Easy booking, check in, luggage check."
Cons: "No water served. Seat selection expensive."
Pros: "No one got hurt and the flight was cheap."
Cons: "We landed 30 minutes early but it was an hour before we got off the plane. It was frustrating and a waste of travel time. I'd be concerned about booking connecting flights with them if this is typical. Or any flight that becomes an hour longer for no real reason."
Cons: "Waiting to long and is rhe same thing as Spirit ...."
Pros: "frontier and kayak allowed me to double book because kayak didn't send me a confirmation when I initially booked the flight several weeks ago"
Cons: "using Kayak!!! This website is a scam. I may fly Frontier again but it definitely won't be through Kayak!"
Pros: "On time flight."
Cons: "Very clean."
Pros: "Fast and smooth"
Cons: "Stewardess are not attentive to passengers needs"
Cons: "Delayed leaving by over 12 hours. Not one free drink (non-alcoholic or otherwise) offered once boarded and in the air. Take off was terrifying, I'm guessing pilots right out of flight school. Overall a wretched disgrace."
Cons: "Carry on charges"
Pros: "Very efficient crew, they made sure we were in the right line."
Cons: "Having to pay for carry on."
Cons: "Flight was delayed four hours."
Pros: "All on time, friendly staff."
Cons: "Having said that, No reclining seat, no snacks, no TV For lacking these things I'd expect the flight to be cheaper"
Pros: "Seats have great leg space and are so comfortable !"
Cons: "I paid extra for a window seat, when boarding the seat looked as if someone had an accident. I had to fight to get to the back of the plane to seek with a crew member. When I told her she handed me a wet papertowel and a dry one. I didn't realize if you paid extra you had to clean as well."
Cons: "Late.. U had to purchase everything"
Pros: "I flew for 3 hours and landed safely"
Cons: "Everything else, paying $40 each way for carry on, paying additional amount for selecting a seat, no one even offered a cup of water for three hours, can of soda 2.99. Complete rip off. Worst travel thus far for me."
Pros: "Great staff and boarding. Got on quickly and arrived exactly on time"
Cons: "I'm good with purchase of food and drink. Didn't rate high due to food allergies so didn't make a purchase. Should off free cup of water or charge $1 for a small cup water"
Pros: "The price for the ticket was good"
Cons: "The seats are uncomfortable and wasn't served a drink or snack on such a long flight . The bag check in was very slow due to the baggage claim tags are handwritten and not computerized like most airlines"
Pros: "Flight was fine. Short flight of 2 hours, but no snack or tv."
Cons: "I wish all planes had a tv on the back of their seats!"
Cons: "No one at the counter before the flight. Everyone was at the gate. I lost my flight and you wanted to charge me anotyer 100 dollars. And i had ti catch a flight frim Orlando and had ti drive myself there. They lost my baggage as well .first night in vegas was ruined by Frontier Airlines. Did not know that I needed my pool sticks to play ahead of purchase new pool sticks they cost $1,200 and I had a purchase 1 days worth of clothes unreal never experienced anything like this such a horrible Airline"
Pros: "Staff was very timely, considerate, and very accommodating."
Pros: "Overall, nothing stands out as exceptional. Just basic. Crew was ok but on both segments of my flight, I found them to be somewhat unprofessional as they were all having personal constrains with each other and seemed a bit annoyed if a passenger needed something."
Cons: "The seats were the most uncomfortable plane seats I've ever sat in. I would recommend frontier for more than a 2 hour flight."
Pros: "We were on time"
Cons: "$40 for luggage and I wasn't told it was credit card only so I had to go through half the airport to buy a pre paid card...another $5"
Pros: "Not much"
Cons: "Seat didn't recline. Flight attendant was very rude telling me to move my bag from the overhead bin. Totally unnessary!"
Pros: "non stop flight. crew was pleasant."
Pros: "Yes, on Frontier you have to pay for any extras - more cushy seats, baggage beyond carryons you can fit under the seat, beverages, food, etc. However, the price of the flight is worth it, even if you add on baggage charges. And a direct flight is priceless."
Cons: "We were a little late boarding, but still made it to Houston on time, so not a big deal, and often unavoidable."
Pros: "The overall service in Tampa and on the aircraft was great."
Cons: "When we arrived, arrived early (which was great news since this was a late flight) but then we had to wait for over an hour for our bags to arrive at baggage claim! Totally ridiculous."
Cons: "The seats were uncomfortable Charged for everything. I could of flew with the major carriers for what I had to pay paid 240 for round-trip then 18 for isle seat and 80 for carry on bag."
Pros: "great price; plane was clean and new; attendant at ticket counter at the airport was friendly and helpful, though I'm not certain she was a Frontier employee (may have been a shared discount airline counter)."
Cons: "trying to navigate the web page to check in on my phone was painful and ultimately fruitless. followed up by trying to call the reservations line, which was equally a waste of time. based on my experience, either find your way to a computer to check in (presumably that works, though can't say for sure), or save yourself the time and stress and just plan to head to the check in desk at the airport."
Pros: "The reason we flew Frontier was because of the low price. We didn't pay for any of the "extras" that we were offered. Perhaps the next thing will be a charge to use the restroom."
Cons: "Late and their customer service unpleasant"
Pros: "The crew was helpful and cheerful and the plane was clean."
Cons: "Crew Rest Delay made travel time much, my ch love Niger. We were over two hours later. To a passenger that sounds like either poor planning or not enough crew. Whatever the reason, it was inconvenient."
Pros: "clean plane"
Cons: "I haven't flown Frontier in a while. I didn't realize I have to buy my seat too? What the heck is that? Sure it's only another $13 min. But here's the catch, you get a seat They've replaced the pull down table with a small flip down "table" that is about 1/3 the size of a standard table. While this does offer more legroom, it makes eating difficult and uncomfortable. I could not rest a standard square salad container on it during the flight. Luckily, I had a plastic bag from the vendor that I could put over my slacks to act as a big placemat. I didn't want to spill dressing on my pants. No WIFI onboard In short, I will be avoiding Frontier in the future. I do fly budget airlines like SW, but at least the attitude there is better. And what you get is clear."
Pros: "Stretch seating"
Cons: "$2 soda $30 carry on charge. What's next $50 charge to have heat in the aircraft."
Cons: "When we landed, they sent our baggage to the wrong carousel and never told us."
Cons: "The amount of hidden fees was ridiculous. It added on about $80 after the price it quoted me. The staff on board were super rude to everyone. And you can't even get any food or drinks on board without them charging you more! Ridiculous..."
Pros: "Both the ground crew and flight crew were very nice and helpful. Though the flight was delayed due to weather, we were kept well-informed."
Cons: "That the airline charges for any and everything."
Pros: "The extra leg room I was able to purchase."
Cons: "The flight attendants were not pleasant, rude to some pas sengers and spent a lot of time talking with each other and a few select passengers."
Pros: "Seats don't recline Flight Attendants were nice Plane was clean Seats were comfortable"
Cons: "$2 for a coke - Really Ridiculous carry on bag fee Waited 45 min for my checked bag Can't check in and select a seat without forking over another $27 2.5 hour delay on departure Low cost airline wound up being more expensive than the big airlines - I won't fly them again Seat Trays too small to hold a laptop Why is "value" not rated above - that would most definitely be poor"
Cons: "A little noisy"
Pros: "Easy quick boarding"
Cons: "Seats were tiny with very little room. No complimentary snack or drinks and a very annoying pilot that thought he was a comedian."
Cons: "Flight delayed, no communication, unfriendly desk staff"
Pros: "Timely boarding, flight left and arrived early"
Cons: "Uncomfortable seats, no plug in for electronics, no wifi."
Cons: "If you really want to know about our experience with Spirit, then call 580-678-4080 and talk with Patrick."
Pros: "The crew was amazing."
Cons: "Nothing. It’s what I expected from Spirit. Got me from A to B as simply as possible."
Pros: "Seat was so comfortable"
Cons: "If we don’t have to pay for baggage we could eat while flight was delayed"
Pros: "Not even free water"
Cons: "Seats dont recline"
Pros: "The overall experience was very nice. The flight attendants were very humorous and made the flight even better. Both my flights arrived early which is always nice. I would definitely fly Spirit again."
Pros: "This was my first time flying Spirit and I had no issues. As long as you are taking a pretty short trip, this airline is great. Also, you should have everything with you, bag, drinks, snacks, etc. because you will pay extra for all of that. I carried a bag pack which fit under the seat and brought my own snacks and entertainment, so no issues. Flight was smooth and flight arrived ahead of schedule."
Cons: "Seats were pretty close together, but I’m a small person so it was fine. If you are tall, this might be an issue. My husband is 6’4” and would have been uncomfortable in a standard row."
Pros: "I got the lucky seat so 5k points for me! Yay!"
Pros: "Friendly staff and updates. Price of tickets very fair."
Cons: "When you bring a very small carry on, a staff will try to charge for it."
Cons: "Everything! A waist of money."
Pros: "Got cancelled"
Cons: "Fly got cancelled"
Pros: "It my favorite ai line, but the staff was great and the trip uneventful."
Pros: "Getting upgraded for feee to an exit row seat where I had more leg room!"
Cons: "Didn't print my own b pass... Should've gone to a kiosk. Got to ticketing 55 min before flight, then I got bounced around from line to line (ending up where I started) and then told sorry! It's closed. I had to rebook, fly to Detroit, wait around 4 hours, and finally got home 8 hours later than scheduled and I had to pay for the new flight! The agent actually mentioned that Spirit overbooked!!! No wonder they didn't give me a b pass right away. Obvious it was a con job."
Pros: "I slept while onboard through both legs. I didn't want to be awake for the flight after the booking expirences."
Cons: "On the outbound leg from Dallas I volunteered to move seats for weight and balance reasons at Spirit's request. My return leg was canceled by the gate agent or the system had me as a no show. I tried to check in for the return leg and was unable. I called to get this resolved and got a CSA that didn't understand airline travel or English not sure which. (One example was I spelled my confirmation code 5 times both phonetically and in plain language) I tried to explain that my return leg was cancel for some reason when I volunteered for the seat adjust on the outbound leg. She continued to ask me to book and make a new reservation. I asked for a supervisor and received no help. Decided the best course of action was to hang up and try to get someone else. After navigating the voice prompts again I finally got someone who asked me for proof I was on the outbound. I informed him no one saves the boarding passes he needs to check the manifest the TSA requires of all airlines. He backed off after he understood that I knew the system and reactivated my return leg. It is still a mystery to me why my return leg was canceled after the airline requested me to move seats. It seems Spirit have saved money on front line employee training and saved a good bit on off shore CSA call center. Last time I'll fly Spirit and I'm posting it everywhere I can. I'll see you on the internet. Spirit Airlines-HC6N2Q"
Pros: "Arrived on time. Easy to get ticket from kiosk . Bag fit under the seat and in the overhead compartment. Cheap ticket."
Cons: "Crew looked and sounded as though they hate their job. Middle seat was much smaller then the isle or window."
Pros: "How they charged you for everything they could dream of."
Pros: "No hassle travel"
Cons: "extra charges for everything"
Pros: "Good flight on time. I fly a lot - exceptional soft landing. Personable, helpful crew."
Cons: "Overpriced bag fees, rude flight attendants, shitty planes."

Pros: "one of the stewardess was helpful but the others were just rude w/nasty attitudes."
Cons: "boarding was late as usual crew was mostly rude seats are cramped with no leg room food?!? bahahahaha ~ yeah, if you want to pay yet another added cost to fly with Spirit Entertainment ~ there is none but luckily my view was nice & I had a ton of pictures that I needed to filter through on my phone"

Cons: "The bag space under the seat in front of me seemed larger before, but it's probably just a misconception."
Cons: "Every thing"
Pros: "On time, friendly crew"
Cons: "overly narrow seats, no free coffee"
Pros: "I personally checked everything through Spirit's website and they let you know online that they are a "no frills" airline. If you can fit it in one bag then the cost is perfect."
Cons: "The amount of people who had no clue what they were in for was unnerving. It was a tight fit."
Pros: "The staff was excellent"
Cons: "The flight was smoth and the the captain and flight attendees where outstanding."
Pros: "The airline is very efficient and the staff is friendly."
Cons: "Very uncomfortable, nothing included. Tiny tray table. Southwest is much better."
Pros: "horrible. horrible. horrible"
Cons: "horrible. horrible. horrible"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Tray tables are too small. They were stupid actually."
Cons: "Our flight was cancelled and we were stranded in the Dallas-Fort Worth airport to find out own way home to Tampa. Spirit refunded us our return flight but was of no help in our rebooking. This was the first and last time I will ever take this airline. They took absolutely no responsibility for their actions and had not concern at all for our well being. Terrible, just terrible. Shame on Spirit Airlines."
Cons: "Spirit cancelled my flight and would not offer to re-book me on a subsequent flight. They refunded my fare, but would not offer any other hep/services. I will NEVER fly this airline again."
Cons: "Had 2 flights from Las Vegas to Tampa. One was late & gate was changed. No one announce gate change & monitors did not show gate change until almost too late. Extra charge for EVERYTHING, including a cup of water AND for cary-on bags. Had 2 flights from Tampa to Las Vegas. One was almost 2 hours late. MULTIPLE people felt the same way we did..... We will NEVER fly with Spirit Airlines again."
Cons: "Flight was canceled just a few hours before the flight was scheduled to take off. We had to buy the last two business class tickets with American Airlines in order to make it to Dallas in time for a national sports tournament. Absolutely horrible."
Pros: "I got there and back, albeit not on time"
Cons: "This airline is a joke. They advertise low prices to entice you to buy flights from them, then they've got you. The fees and charges to actually complete your trip are OUTRAGEOUS. My family and I began making jokes about all the fees, just to keep our sanity. I had initially booked us on American but switched it to Spirit because I thought I was saving $400. In the end, I spent 20% more flying Spirit We almost missed our return flight. After overly scolding us for cutting it so close, the lady at the ticket counter did everything possible to cause us to miss it. We sprinted to the gate where we were again chastised for not being earlier. Of course once we boarded, we sat there at the gate for over an hour due to maintenance issues. We concluded that they call the airline Spirit because they break your spirit if you fly this airline."
Pros: "The crew was helpful and very nice at all times. The plane was clean and relatively new. Price was great, considering that I paid $96 for two passengers total, with taxes."
Cons: "Some of the passenger's attitude was not the right one. The prices for check bags, was a little inthehigh side."
Pros: "Loved the price. Flew from DFW to Tampa round trip for $121."
Cons: "The space on the plane is tough on me with no reclining chairs but then again I am 6'4" and 240 lbs."
Pros: "Overall flying experience including 'On Time' performance. Reasonable service during flight."
Cons: "The uncomfortable seat which could not be reclined for a little comfort. The seat pitch (distance between 2 rows) was awful because the passenger in the seat right behind me was constantly kicking me in my back and that was very annoying."
Pros: "Nothing I will never fly with this airline again"
Cons: "$55.00 for a carry on. Flight delayed for 1.5 hours and still want to charge $3.00 for water. Seats very cramped. Staff not friendly. Check in, the computers were down for 1/2 hour. Should I continue ?"
Pros: "Very little save the fact that the plane was new."
Cons: "Pretty much everything. Low priced at the he outset but by the time they nickel and dime you to death and basically charge for a reasonable sized carry on bag the costs are the same, and at that point you're paying more for less!"
Cons: "Spirit website is horrible and so is the customer service"
Cons: "They tried to charge me after canceling two of my flights. Missed two days of my vacation in California and had to drive 5 hours from Tampa to ft. Launder dale to get a flight which included me having to rent a car extra. Never would recommend spirit to anyone."
Cons: "Flight canceled"
Cons: "My Flight was suppose to depart at 1:25 p.m and was delayed until 2:15. When I got to the terminal the flight had been moved to 4 different terminals and then was taken down all together until one of the other spirit airlines flights left. This ultimately ended up putting is at a 2 hour delay on flight and almost caused me to miss my connecting flight. If it weren't for a good amount of other people needing the connection flight that I needed I would have missed my flight."
Pros: "The boarding process was actually fairly smooth and efficient."
Cons: "I purchased the Spirit ticket because it was ~$30 cheaper than my other options. I was okay with the connecting flights for the savings. Silly me, I didn't check the fine print-- Spirit charges to CARRY ON a bag. Both ways. The $30 I thought I saved was quickly erased when I ended up spending $90 to carry a duffel bag on the plane. All FOUR of my flights were delayed by nearly two hours. Seats were thin, sparsely padded, and cramped."
Pros: "The crew was so unprofessional and it's like we were bothering them when we asked for something."
Cons: "The crew The seats. The person behind me kicked the whole time and the person next to me spread har legs and took the arm rest so it was the worst flight I ever experienced. They need to recline a little more leg room since I paid $36 for 2 seats and wifi."
Cons: "I wish there was in flight wifi and cvs."
Cons: "Delayed cuz the A/C smelt. Didn't offer us anything."
Pros: "This flight form Tampa to Dallas was smooth. There were no problems, boarding was quick, the plane was clean, the ride was smooth, the pilot was nice, thank you Spirit for finally getting this right."
Cons: "It would be great if all experiences like I had yesterday with Spirit were the same. Please have some extra training for your flight attendants and other employees and offer ways for them to interact positively like the ones who work at the Tampa airport."
Pros: "Cheap flight. I sat in the big seats which were spacious."
Cons: "It was cold on the plane. The flight was also late leaving."
